    I'm sorry but I don't have for this one, I'm using x96. Please contact @aidanmacgregor directly.
    Hi, greetings from Switzerland

    just installed

    "5. [v7] Aidan's ROM [S905X] [ATV 9] (Ampak APxxxx Build In).img"

    on my

    Mecool K1 Pro (2GB/16GB)

    and almost all seems to work like a charm. The only problems I found so far:

    - Blue power LED does not change to red when switching off the power
    - PowerON via remote control does not work

    Everything else, that I tested, works great.

    Thank you for your great work
    hi all!

    dear @aidanmacgregor , and the rest!

    today I managed to successfully use your ROM , to flash into my tvbox:

    X96 MAX Plus 4GB/64GB Amlogic S905x3

    ROM installed:
    Latest Version v7 (29/April/2021)

    thank you for all your efforts!
    Hi, First off - thanks @aidanmacgregor for the ROMs that continue to make our S905X devices useful. I have used both the Android 7 and Android 9 version of your ROM, but have a question. I have a X96 1G/8G device which I also use to run Coreelec. In your Android 7 version, I can get the X96 to boot into Coreelec on the uSD card by pressing the reset button (in IR port) which booting up.

    However in the Android 9 version this is not possible. Pressing the reset button does not seem to make any difference. I have tried on version Options 1, 2 and 7 of the new v7. On my device, if I press the reset button while booting up (without uSD card), I am supposed to get to recovery, but this is also not happening. Is it possible that the dtb does not recognise the reset button being activated? Is there any way to overcome this. I very much like to be able to dual boot Android 9 and Coreelec

    Is it possible that the bootloader is locked for the Android 9?
    Hello ineed rom support my device X96_MINI 2 ram 16 rom sv6030p wifi chip
    im also after a rom, ive tried all of them, none work x96 mini sv6030p which is a s905w chip

    Help & FAQ

    Netflix wont work from play store
    The TV Version of Netflix needs Widevine Level 1 DRM, This cannot be added to your device with a firmware, Patched Netflix Apk Now Available

    Amazon Prime Wont Work
    A. Like Netflix Install the mobile app, the TV version needs Widevine Level 1

    Disney+ No Sound
    A. Fixed Earlier Release

    No Root
    There Is No Root In This Firmware Because This Is a User Build (Not User Debug)
    User Build: This Is Like The official Android Tv Devices (Like Mi Box), it does not have root or TWRP, Uses Release Keys and is SELINUX enforced
    This Makes More Apps Show Up In The Play Store that didn't show before, (Example: Isp Android TV live tv app, only shows in Play Store On non rooted and SELINUX enforced devices, also the streams in the app do not even play in rooted devices.) And other Apps With Similar Issues On Non Certified Devices....

    Thanks DiogoSilva48

    Thanks for the reply and eagerly waiting for manual update. The existing rom is almost like stock one. Happy with it, and the manual update would enhance it further.

    I tried sideloading many .apk for prime video of different versions and both platforms - mobile and android tv. Even tried aptroid.tv app store with someone's suggestions on google.
    However, the mobile versions did not even install. And the TV versions though installed but returned with the same error. Only trailers are able to play. Main content isn't playing and the error "Something went wrong" shows up.

    If you could help me with any working apk for prime video, kindly provide. Just like the netflix you provided.

    Thank you so much in advance Aidan.
    hey v7 is now available, most are uploaded 2 still uploading :)

    Wifi working perfectly fine on my 8189etv.
    Hello Timosat, as I understood I have to find ly remote file and then after several step sut this folder in aidans rom... Where to find the right remote folder for my box? I have the remote.conf from a previous rom can I use this file?
    I read that you use Atvx 4 rom to do this ? You choosed this rom because your remote works with this rom?
    It's a long process with patience. Your remote.conf file has to be renamed to remote.tab1 and use any good file explorer eg mixexplorer and transfer tthe remote file to vendor/etc folder .But before you do this make sure you are rooted. You may try and root Aidan's rom first by patching recovery.Partition method.And see if your remote will work. As for my case yes I use atvx4 rom because I've tried Aidan's rom my remote did not work. So I made (should I call it hybrid) rom.By taking system.PARTITION from Aidan's rom and substitute it in atvx4 and also patching atvx4 recovery.PARTITION with Magisk.Then I repacked and flashed to my box.
